      What's New in NCM 5.5

      • NCM Integration Module (for Orion NPM website)
        • Standalone NCM web console capabilities are now available from the Orion NPM web console, including upload, download, execute script, inventory reporting, and compliance reporting.   Orion node limitations and account view limitations can also be applied to these new views and resources! 
        • Ability to enable Cisco EnergyWise and configure EnergyWise policies across Cisco 2k and 3k switches running 12.2(50)SE1 and Cisco 4k switches running 12.2(52)SG(0.86)
